Yakult Light

Finally! A product improvement from Yakult after the emergence of gazzilions of products. Yakult for so long only have their one and only product. No product extension, improvement nor modification. Same old look and size, it's only the price that is changing and not much Yakult ladies anymore. 

People are gearing towards being healthy, one of the healthy products for me would always be Yakult. I love drinking Yakult! It taste so good plus it has good health benefits. I can drink 1 pack in one sitting haha I just don't do it. It is said that one bottle is the recommended amount of lactobacillus that we need in a day. Can anyone please tell me if what is the maximum quantity that we can consume in a day? hihi


So here's Yakult light, the sound of it it's like the healthier version of the regular Yakult but with a bland taste.


It has the same size with the regular Yakult. 

 

It's good that they put the expiry date at each of the bottle. This is very important!


How many calories per bottle? Looks ok to me!


Since it's light, let us see the difference of the ingredients to know how did it became light. :)


Oh, it has more ingredients that seems like a little complicated. I don't know if the ingredients are really lighter but I do believe in them. There's still glucose but additional fructose and sucralose. Skimmed milk used for light is in powdered form and with additional flavor. I wonder what flavor is it?


Though there are difference in the ingredients the taste is still almost the same. There's a little difference in taste but it's not super noticeable. It's your regular Yakult taste but better for the health.

Did you like it?

Celeteque Dermo Science Acne Solutions Acne Spot Corrector Gel

Argh! I'm having terrible break out lately! Why o why?? My acne fighter is almost finish, like my previous post I was getting out of what I was using so I have to get a new one. I was thinking of trying a new one so I have thought of getting Celeteque again. I have tried this before already so I want to try it again to help me with my current problem. 

 

This is one of the product from Celeteque Dermo Science + Acne Solutions Line. This is Acne Spot Corrector Gel, it is the product that helps to dry out acne so that it will disappear as fast as I hope it to be. I also use this when I have some emerging or the acne that is just about to come out. I try to prevent it from coming out.


To know more about the product. It has the ingredients to control acne.


It's good that they indicate both manufacturing and expiry dates plus it's easy to read.

Now let's move on to the tube, yes it's in a tube form.




It's good that they also put the expiry dates in the tube so that when we throw the box already we would still know.

The actual product since it is in gel type, it's clear in color and of course gel type.


My Experience:
  • I like the look, it looks very dermaish (since this is really their intention)
  • It has the ingredients for fighting acne
  • It smells ok, herb like. It's not irritating and mild.
  • Tube type is ok with me since it's easy to get the product
  • More hygienic
  • Easy to control how much product I need
  • The gel abosorbs well and easily
  • It dries up acne after 3 to 4 days (this is the big one huhu)
  • It stings a little bit but I feel that it is working
  • It dries the acne only and not the face or skin
  • It works strong with acne but mild on the skin, doesn't burn the skin
Just make sure not to put too much, just put the needed amount on the acne.

This is a good over the counter product. I will get this when needed.

(P.S. Sorry I am not confident to share images of my actual experience... I am shy with my break out.)

Disclaimer: This is not a paid post. Got the item at my own expense.

Bak Kut Teh


Just a very quick post for today. I was gone for several days last week but since it was a business trip I didn't had the chance to document new food that I was able to have. I was just around somewhere in Asia and here's what I was able to try for the first time. 

I already have heard about this food but it was only now that I was able to try this and it was in the airport already. This is Bak Kut Teh, it's like Ma Kut (Spareribs / Meat Bone soup) but with better flavored soup. The soup is more flavorful and a little spicy. 

It is usually paired with this 3 side dishes... steamed soy peanut, vegetable (kiam chay) and Chinese doughnut. And of course like Ma Kut, Bak Kut Teh has it's own distinctive soy sauce that is really good (The soy sauce is covered in this photo.. I'm so sorry)!  


Where's the best Bak Kut Teh?

Eskinol Pimple Fighting Facial Wash

This year, I find myself trying more and more products for the first time but of course I still have my to go to products! For facial washes, I am actually adventurous enough as long as it is for acne prone skin. I was about to run out of my usual facial wash and then suddenly it was not available in the supermarket that I usually go to. I was also in a hurry and why in the world it was that time when acne clearing variants of different brands were also not available. Thank God I saw this one, Eskinol Pimple Fighting Facial Wash. I tried to read it even if I was running out of time already, since it was indicated that it's pimple fighting and with Dermaclear formula I thought that it was worth a try.



Base on the packaging it also controls oil, helps breakouts and also an anti-bacterial formula. I actually don't know which one of the ingredient is the pimple fighting formula. Eskinol is already a well known brand for skin care specially for toners. Since they are a trusted brand already, I was at ease to try their facial wash.



It actually has a big hole!


My Experience:
  • The product in color white looks very pure, with out any harmful chemicals
  • Smells good and very derma like
  • Presentation of the packaging is simple but the white part gets dirty easily
  • The hole is big, I always get more product than what I need
  • After almost a month of using the product (still using all the same products except for the facial wash only), I still encounter continuous break outs :(  
  • I find that it doesn't really work as pimple fighting
  • I didn't feel the product's authority to fight my breakouts
It may just be my experience. How about you? How was it with you?

Herbal Essences Dangeroulsy Straight Shampoo

Hi guys! We are in the second half of 2014 already! In a few months time it will be BER months already! Wah!! How time runs fast!

It's hair care time again! :) I was in the mood to try another hair care again and then I suddenly realized that I haven't been using Herbal Essences for quite some time already! So here I am addicted to Herbal Essences shampoo again. If you've been reading my blog you may already know that I have blogged about Herbal Essences already but it was the conditioner. So this will be my first post for their shampoo.


In using Herbal Essences again, I decided to get this dangerously straight variant. Since I have short hair and it's already in the length that is prone to fly away! I don't want to cut it since it will grow back again to that length, so the answer tothos is to manage it as much as I can. And one of my way in managing with this length of hair is to use a good shampoo.


To know more about the product, here's the back portion. :) I really like the cuteness and creativity of Herbal Essences hair care! Very consistent and creates story for every hair problem. The colors are very vibrant, fun personality and energetic vibe. 


Here's my experience of this product.



Sorry about the hair :)

What I like about the product:
  • Great presentation
  • Smells so good! But not too strong
  • Smell stays for several hours
  • I appreciate the colored shampoo, it's cute
  • Texture is just right, not super thick but not too thin
  • Really helped me managed to straighten hair for the first few weeks of use
  • Amount of product is just right
  • Hole of the packaging is just right, not too big but big enough to get the right amount of product needed
What I didn't like about the product:
  • After several weeks of usage, seems it didn't help me manage to straighten hair
  • It's like my hair was used to it.
Tip: To maximize the effect of this product, you can rest for 1 to 2 days of using this product

Here's how my hair looked! Look at the fly away hairs at the bottom. It could have been worse with out managing it! :)

Fete De La Musique Manila 2014

Last week I went to Fete De La Musique Manila 2014 with my friends. I actually don't have any idea about it, I just know that it's a music festival. I was oriented by my friend that it's a yearly thing and it's a music festival that plays different genres of music at different venues. I really don't have that much idea of Fete De La Musique Manila 2013, but according to my friend the venue last year isn't as much as of that this year.

Fete De La Musique originated from Paris and now is here in Manila to help aspiring musicians to have an outlet to showcase their talents. 

For this post, I just want to share with you my experience from Fete De La Musique last week! The reason why we attended this Music Festival is just to hang out with my friends and turned to Music appreciation, learning more of different types of music.

For this year, Fete De La Musique Manila had 2 main stages (Makati and Intramuros Manila). My friends and I decided to hop around the Makati area and here are the pocket stages that we were able to attend to.

1. Rock at B Side, The Collective

I actually am not a fan of rock music but it's worth a try to learn about rock. It was hard for me to appreciate rock music para akong nabing.... so I just focused on checking out the fashion of those who love rock music. I find it amusing but there are some that caught my attention, they balanced the rock feel but still very fashyon.




2. Indie Stage by NDFY at 12 Monkeys Century City Mall

I was able to appreciate this music and crowd. There were different types of music but were mostly a band. It's not your usual pop or r&b music but it's relatable and good for relax, chill, happy, party etc. depending on the style of the musician. The crowd in here is more of the young people. I would love to go back at 12 monkeys since I was drooling on their food! Every time the waiter brings out food, it's like my eyes have magnet on it. I wasn't able to try any food since it was a standing room.




3. Chill Out Stage by Radar MNL at Buddha Bar

I was also able to appreciate this type of music along with the venue. The music was very relaxing and really perfect for that chill night! You can dance along with the music but it's not that loud of that crazy night. The crowd here are a little older and sosyal.




4. Jazz Stage by PI Jazz Festival Foundation Hosted by Sandra Lim-Viray at Bayleaf Lounge, St. Giles Hotel

I was also able to appreciate this type of music, it's slow and relaxing but with a strong character. The crowd here were mostly older people and drinks spirits. This is a relaxing music and I think great for date nights. 


5.  Blues Soul & Funk Stage by Mamborat Productions at H&J 

I was only able to listen to one song only since they had to take a break. I enjoyed this one because of the personality of the song and it was very entertaining. It's nice for that night out with friends where in you can have a conversation, hang out, drink and dance. The place was oh so crowded! Here, the crowd is a mixture of young ones and foreigners. I hope to go back to this place since I heard that the food is great.


6. World Stage by Luna Fest + Musikeraw at Cafe Curieux

This is the most entertaining stage of all! If music alone, I might not be able to appreciate it. But the music is combined with special acts. This type of entertainment is very ideal to watch when in the beach. The place was too crowded too, you have to extend at your best to be able to see the acts. The crowd here is a mixture of young adult, young ones and foreigners. 







7. Electronica Stage by Nomad Massive at Time in Manila

This is the party party song, very upbeat and energetic. This is the ones played on bars and party place. This is for the young ones who are very much into partying. The place is almost empty and I don't know why. 


8. Latin Stage at Chihuahua

We were able to see people dancing with Latin songs. The smell of the Mexican food was too strong so we were not able to stay long. The place was jam packed and the people inside were really Latin looking. It was cute. 


9. A. Venue Main Stage

Here there are representatives from each music genre to perform. 


I actually didn't plan to blog about this experience. But after the whole experience, I felt that I want to share it. It's a nice venue to know and learn about different musics. Learning the culture of the music and matching it with the people who are in to that music. It's like traveling, learning the culture and people of the place. It was a very tiring event but fun! It's more fun if you go with a group of friends, the more the merrier. If I had decided early on to blog about this, I should have taken videos of the musics and shared it with you. Hope you enjoyed this post. :)

Fete De La Musique Outfit

Here's a very quick post for today. I attended Fete De La Musique (Manila) last Saturday. It's my first time to attend the event and actually I don't really have any idea about the event. I don't know what to expect too. I didn't bother to research about it too since I will be going with my friends, I was just thinking to enjoy and have fun. I was just told that we will be going from one place to the other so I should wear something very comfortable.

Outfit consideration: 1.) Lots of walking (transfer of venue) 2.) Mix of indoor and outdoor venue, 3.) Mix of high end and street wise venue 4.) Hot weather 


Here's what I decided to wear, definitely very friendly for the hot weather plus very comfortable. And of course it should be trendy.


I really love this pants, it gives so much personality already that I just need to pair it with basics. So I paired it with this spag strap with built in underwear already (this is super duper comfortable!). But since I didn't want to look too sexy and expose too much skin, I decided to add a cover up and added a little color. Decided not to wear too much accessories too.

This look is more of a fun, edgy, street, funky and hip. But since it's a music festival, I think it's still appropriate for those more sophisticated venues too.
